VICTOR DAVIS HANSON:: Two, Three, Many Obamas – NRO

By Victor Davis Hanson -- As the campaign heats up, one problem is that we continue to meet lots of different Barack Obamas — to such a degree that we don’t know which, if any, is really president. I think the president believes that private-equity firms harm the economy and that their CEOs are at best indifferent and sometimes unsympathetic to the struggle of ... Go To Article

JOHN STOSSEL:: Improving Life for Workers – RCP

By John Stossel -- It seems intuitive that a free market would lead to a "race to the bottom." In a global marketplace, profit-chasing employers will cut costs by paying workers less and less, and shipping jobs to China. It's a reason that progressives say government must step in. So America now has thousands of rules that outlaw wages below $7.25 an hour, ... Go To Article

SALLY PIPES:: Obamacare diagnosed as quackery – BostonHerald

By Sally C. Pipes The Supreme Court hasn’t yet rendered its verdict on Obamacare, but the nation’s doctors have. And they think it will wreck America’s health care system. The latest evidence comes from a new survey of young doctors by the Physicians Foundation. Nearly 60 percent of doctors aged 40 and under are pessimistic about the future of American health ...

JENKINS:: The Bain Ads Are About Spending – WSJ

By HOLMAN W. JENKINS, JR. -- Who says Wall Streeters aren't filled with a desire to please? Two big-name Democratic financiers, Roger Altman and Steven Rattner, may not be ready to defend the president's deceitful Bain ads. But they promptly took to the airwaves to defend the president's defense of the ads, after President Obama himself issued a few syllables they ... Go To Article

CHARLES C.W. COOKE:: Dining Out on Dubious Identity – NRO

By Charles C. W. Cooke In recent weeks, much hay has been made of Elizabeth Warren’s claim to an American Indian background, in favor of which proposition the candidate has presented as evidence her mother’s stories, her family’s high cheekbones, and, perhaps most risibly, her contributions to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow cookbook. As yet, nobody seems to have picked ... Go To Article

NUCLEAR ARMS:: American Zero | The Weekly Standard

BY THOMAS DONNELLY The Cold War is an increasingly distant memory in American military minds, except in the minds of the arms control community, and in particular those who seek the elimination of nuclear weapons. Alas, our president is a member in good standing of this community—indeed, an organizer. So, too, it appears, is Obama’s “favorite general,” James ... Go To Article

McCOTTER:: “You clean up your own mess” | The Detroit News

BY THADDEUS MCCOTTER Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans," John Lennon mused. How right he was. Last Friday, shortly before a Memorial Day weekend wreath-laying commemorating and honoring our fallen men and women in uniform, I received a call that my 11th Congressional District GOP nominating petitions for the August primary ballot were ...
